Hi all,
I need a little help with jetting of a Holley carb.
We just started our ’77 Warlock 360 for the first time yesterday to break in the cam.
YEA it runs!

The new motor has a performer manifold, headers and a ’69 340 cam.
I was hoping that someone has ran a similar motor with a Holley carb that can tell me what would be a good primary jet size to start with.

I have to hold the choke closed most of the way to get the motor to continue to run.
The float level is correct.

The carb is a 4160 Holley 600 CFM vacuum secondary carb and it is running lean.
This carb was on the stock motor with an SP-2P manifold when we got the truck, it didn’t run. I’m thinking it was set really lean for economy

Thanks for all the help
Scott

Are there any Holley users out there?

I don't think it could be jetted that lean.At idle it should be running on the idle circuit so the jets won't affect it much.I would check for a vac. leak.If that doesn't show anything the carb. is likely stopped up and needs cleaning.

Thanks for the reply.
I do plan on rebuilding the carb, I was hoping to get a starting point for the jetting while I have it apart. Do you have a suggestion for starting jet size?
Thanks

I don't think a 600 will be that far off to start.After you drive it awhile you should be able to tell which way you need to go.With that cam I would get a lower power valve to start with.

Thanks for the reply.
I don't know the history of this carb. The truck was not running when we got it.
The motor had an SP-2P manifold on it, so the previous owner did try for max mileage.
I was hoping to get a starting point for the jetting with a much hotter 360.
We are running a 340 cam, performer manifold, headers and flowmasters. I am afraid that the PO jetted the carb lean and it will be too lean with the new hotter motor.
I think this carb will work well once it's dialed in, I just don't want to have problems with the first drive.
Thanks
Scott
